R-E-S-P-E-C-T as the song goes. Is it even a word people know these days? I’m not talking about just celebrities either. I’m talking about people who don’t repsect themselves in the language they use in their songs, don’t respect the authorities and the laws of the land, don’t respect other humans – domestic violence, don’t respect their parents and what’s even worse they don’t respect themselves.
I teach my kids to respect themselves, us as their parents and others. When did respect become a thing of the past? Even adults who you would think know how to be respectful say things in front of children, make snide racial comments and joke about God (how offensive). I was faced with this situation just the other day and I can’t tell you how disheartening it was.
I will continue to do the best I can to teach my children to always be respectful of others and their belongings. I have to thank my parents for doing such a wonderful job of teaching me respect. I hope I can do as good a job with my kids.
